The students of St Brigid's Primary School achieved remarkable results in this year's Collie Interschool Cross Country Carnival.

Held on Wednesday, June 5, runners from all five primary schools - Allanson, Amaroo, Fairview, Wilson Park, and St Brigid's - came together in Allanson for an exciting day of events.

Students, parents, and teachers provided each competitor with plenty of encouragement.

Good team co-ordination and great sportsmanship saw St Brigid's secure its fourth consecutive Handicap Shield win.

St Brigid's Year 6 teacher Zoe Howard praised the students for their hard work and positive attitudes.

"It feels absolutely fantastic. It feels really good to see them achieve their own personal goals," she said.

"We've got some fantastic athletes who are really shining.

"Cross country running helps the students to set personal goals and improve their fitness."

"Our students participate in the 'Daily Mile' four days per week. The initiative really helps them to keep fit."
